New Book Series: Environmental Studies of the Great Lakes

Scroll this

Michigan State University Press is pleased to announce that it is launching a new book series titled “Environmental Studies of the Great Lakes.”

Edited by Robert Michael Morrissey and Daniel Macfarlane, this series will publish scholarly monographs, edited collections, and reprinted classics that examine the environmental aspects of the region’s past. Defining the region expansively, works in this series connect the lakes with national and international themes—for example, globalization, invasive species, freshwater systems, global water politics and, especially, environmental justice. The goal of this series is to produce a series of books fundamentally about the Great Lakes and also of interest to all readers of critical and compelling environmental studies.

Please send queries and proposals to Robert Michael Morrissey and Daniel Macfarlane.
